Brewers vs Twins

26 posts in this topic

The border battle starts tomorrow - I predict 2 out of 3 for the Crew and probably the opposite later in the Dome. Not that I wouldn't like to see a sweep job on the Twinkies grin

so what ya guys think on the Harris not getting the time when he asked for it twice and stepped back and the pitch went and struck him out!

As a Brewer's fan, I think it was a good call. Kind of lookedlike Gardenhire didn't agree though.

Man. Miller park is the best. Tons of Twins fans, even the brewers fans were friendly. We had great seats. Came early and tailgated, then stayed an hour or so afterward. Twins won in extra innings!

its maddening when your team musters up 2 runs against a total scrub like McClung with his lifetime starting pitching ERA of over 6

well If I was a Brewers fan I would have said the same thing, and I bet if the Brewers were batting, they would have got the time. crazy

I was up nort and hear the Twins won Fri and Sat, the Crew Sun. Anything exciting other than the no-time out call?

How come if this was a Packers Vikes thread the Pack fans would be rubbing in our faces the Packs Super Bowl wins.

TWINS 2 World Series WINS Brewers ZERO

What??? What did you say?? The Brewers have only been to the playoffs ONCE??? In the franchises entire existance- ONCE?? I gotta go, I cant type and laugh at the same time.

Brewers fans have more class. When I was at Miller Park I didnt see anything negative between opposing fans. AT ALL.

That is because the Twins won!!

We were there last year and two different groups of young punks were riding my 12 year old son for having a Hunter Jersey and using foul language and telling him to get the F out of their state. Isolated? Probably, but was two different groups, but were very drunk. Twins did lose that game though - so that gave them something to talk about!

If it was a Pack/Viking post the Viqueen fans would be whining as usual!

Back to the original topic, anyone going to the dome for the next Brew/Twins series?

Actually I always see more Packer fan finger pointing than Vikes fans whining. Barring having won a Super Bowl, all in all the Vikes have had a more successful franchise than Green Bay. It's a fact, sorry.

Brewers fans are a good bunch...always a drunk thats a headache, but you have that everywhere.

Harris should have got time but even if he didn't the pitching bocked! What a joke call.

Oh well, 2 of 3 is solid and hopefully they can put a string of series wins together.

Excitement Saturday - Kubel Bomb, Baker 4k for 3 outs

Yep, you'll get arseholes anywhere you go.

Side note, I don't think I've ever been to the basketball forum but I'd bet the debate between the Bucks and T-wolves fans is about like this: our team stinks worse than yours - no way, our team is horrible, you guys are just bad!

Ahha. That might be what it would be like. Except its hard pressed to find T-wolves and Bucks fans. So there is really nothing to debate. NBA is such a joke. Even the savior finals failed to live up to the hype. The Lakers were suppose to be soo good blah blah blah, when really they could have easily been swept.

Lets hope we can see a Border Battle Series! That would be some tightness!!!

You can't be serious Zamboni???? The only thing the Vikings have been more successful at, is being the first team to reach the Super Bowl 4 times and lose them all. Of course you could throw in the worst loss in NFC Championship history as well...Giants 41 Vikings 0 ...I'll give you props on the 2 World Series titles...those are bragging rights (of course we're not supposed to brag about winning championships right)?

Gardy got fined for DELAY OF GAME by the Major League after arguing the Harris non time out call. He did not leave the home plate area in a timely fashion.

What was the original topic anyway.

Badger- you better count division titles,overall the Vikings have had MORE SUCCESS. It IS a fact, look it up. Before Favre came along the Packers didn't have a single winning season in over TWENTY YEARS!!!

Vikings- 16 Division Championships

I was sitting in the local watering hole last night watching the game. I looked at the dude next to me and commented that if the Brew's pitcher keeps pitching Joe Mauer inside like he was, Joe was going to turn on the next one and ding it.

It was a call. Great game to watch.

    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
    •   Good questions. You have 3 body style configurations to choose from.  The YJ body was made from 87-97 and that had either a 4 cyl or an inline 6. It had leaf springs and a pretty spartan interior IMO. Some serious off roaders liked the leaf springs but they rode pretty rough IMO.   I feel the 4 cyl is anemic especially with bigger tires. The 4.0 inline 6 is bulletproof, has decent torque and power and fits the Jeep about perfectly. In the YJ series the manual transmission seemed like a better option in my experience.   The TJ ran from 98-06. This version replaces leaf springs with coil over shocks. Mine is an 06 and has the dana rear with the 4.0 and auto trans. I have BFG AT KO 32x10s and on gravel they have taken out 2 side mirrors by throwing rocks at them.    I prefer the TJ series. It has better suspension and interior than the YJ while keeping the original drive train. Fuel economy pretty much sucks as you are essentially driving a brick. I probably get about 12 MPG. If they had done a diesel I would think the wrangler could get 30 but...   The JK series replaced the TJ and was a pretty radical redesign. The body is wider, the drivetrain is totally different and the interior was upgraded quite a bit as well. They went to a pentastar V6 instead of the inline 4.0. trans was upgraded as well. They also started to sell the 4 door unlimited which gives more interior space as well. The new ones are much more civilized and refined which is great for taking the top off and driving to the lake or beach. OTOH they are expensive and harder to justify taking off the top and heading into the woods to hunt or find mud. 
    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.
